The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

Oh, is it that holiday again?

Happy Valentine's Day ... Straight from the Heart!

Sorry for the inconvenience …

I finally got the head Condo Commando on the phone today, about our non-existant dog.

“Oh yea,” he said. “I was about to call you about that.” Uh huh … I thought. No, really. I believe you. “It turns out the Vice President of the Association made a mistake and had the wrong information. So don't worry about it.”

That's it? It was all a mistake? “Uh, okay,” I said, in shock. I got off the phone.

We moved, because of a mistake?

I am without speech …


Meanwhile, back at the Facility in the Middle of Nowhere, the Cable Company came out to install the cable modem (and cable TV while they were at it). Since our current firewall was still at Condo Conner, the cable modem was attached to Rob's computer.

Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, but this is a cable modem and they usually lock onto the MAC address of the network card they hook up to. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

But for now, we have connectivity at the Facility in the Middle of Nowhere.

Oh, and cable TV. With about five zillion channels, including TechTV, which Spring is thrilled over.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
